PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

  • SWAMP MILKWEED - WHITE
  • Asclepias incarnata
  • Long blooming perennial pollinator attractor
  • Heirloom variety with long lasting, white summer blooms
  • Thrives in bright, sunny growing areas
  • Monarch populations have been in decline for a number of years, and the loss of nectar sources and milkweeds has been indicated as a major contributor to these declines.  This mixture is composed of native wildflowers, garden flowers and milkweeds which supply nectar sources for adult monarchs.  Milkweeds are utilized for egg-laying and provide food to monarch caterpillars. 
  • Crisp, white blooms atop lush foliage are a sight to behold all on their own, but once they begin to attract bright and beautiful butterflies to your yard, we're sure that White Swamp Milkweedwill become an instant favorite! A long blooming perennial, it takes some time to establish Asclepias from seed, but the effort is well worth the reward!
